stated, there is no doubt that iran has weapons of mass destruction and that he is planning on using them against our friends, are allies, and against us. >> they are controlled by a murderous tyrant who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> suddam hussein has and used mass destruction weapons against america. that, of course, has turned out to be bull puck key as well. press secretary said this. make no mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no it isn't and no it wasn't ever. even the bush administration was forced to concede reluctantly that there were not weapons of mass destruction where upon the president decided to make it into a joke. >> no weapons over there. maybe under here. >> that was just as hilarious at the time as it still is today, with more than 4,400 american lives to bolster the belly laughs. ultimately, none of the things our government, at the time, told us were the reasons we had to start a war in iraq were true. opponents of the war said

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> today in the united states senate, language in the defense authorization bill that would let the military "don't ask, don't tell" fell to defeat. senate republicans, in fact, took the historic step of filibustering the entire defense authorization bill in order to maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. they would not even allow debate on the defense bill because it included that language to let the military repeal its own policy on keeping gay people out of the military. and so we don't have a bill to fund the military this year. at least so far. and the "don't ask, don't tell" policy lives. what happens next? well, here is a clue. when i interviewed vice president joe biden less than a week ago, i asked him why if the administration was so opposed to "don't ask, don't tell," why were they still implementing it? why were they still discharging openly gay members of the u.s. military now that
that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "countdown with keith olbermann" starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? the great republican small business scam. small business is a brand name. the shocking truth about which businesses are called small businesses and why. the "chicago tribune," a "small business." bechtel, small business. a "countdown" special report, small in name only. with pulitzer prize-winning journalist david k. johnson and chris hayes. >>> and the story of the route to the truth. via lawsuits and this rare slip of honesty. >> when you start to look at who's going to be taxed, about half of all small business income will be taxed under the president's proposal. >> old man yells at cloud. john mccain loses it when confronted by the fact that the military has investigated gay personnel, despite the supposed protections of don't ask, don't tell. >> i know the military very well. and i know what's being done. and what is being done is that they are not seeking out people who are gay. and i don't care what you say. i
a terrorist attack, even though her father and his president were responsible for us having to absorb the last one. >>> as christine o'donnell finds the gold mine, on the same subject, sharron angle has a big mouth. >> when i said it on sean hannity's television show, we made $40,000 before we even got out of the studio in new york. >> the revelation that fox news is one giant fund-raising and publicity gift in kind to the republican party. i know, you're shocked. >> i'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here. >> your winnings, sir. >>> all the news and commentary now on "countdown." >> i had some business in new york today, so thank you for having me on. >>> good evening from new york. with the final session of congress before election day coming down to the wire now, democrats are still torn between whether to force republicans to vote now in defense of tax cuts for the rich or to duck a vote on extending the bush tax cuts and let republicans campaign against them for letting all taxes rise. if it seems like a no-brainer, our fifth story tonight should remove all doubt. a
in cleveland, he attacked us for closing a few of these loopholes. mr. boehner and the republicans in congress said no to these projects. fought them tooth and nail. mr. boehner has so far said no to infrastructure, that's bad for america. so let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else, we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer. when these same republicans, including mr. boehner, were in charge, the number of earmarks and pet projects went up, not down. >> is that the presidentç gettg turbocharged in the president hammered boehner throughout the speech including this. when he laid out an incredible small business idea and proposal. i am proposing that all-american businesses should be allowed to write off all the investment they do in 2011. and this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment and will encourage large corporations to get off the sidelines and start putting their profits to work in places like cleveland and toledo and dayton. to most of you, i'll bet this just seems like common sense. but not to mr. boehner and his allies. >> i think t
>> we marched on because we knew good was not releasing us to quit. >> but some of it is hardly that silly. church pedophelia victims today ask of ron johnson republican senate candidate in wisconsin, get the diocese to release the names of the priests involved. because when he was still on a diocese board, he testified on the bill to toughen laws against pedophelia, testified against it, because the new laws would be too tough on business. >> i think it is extremely important to consider the economic havoc and the other victims it would likely create. >> non-sensenbrenner strikes again. if the republicans take the house he wants to turn the select committee on global warming into an investigation of obama's green power initiatives and of the so-called climategate. the 9/11 first responders bill finally passes. and glenn beck says war against fox. >> i know you and i have a special relationship. >> several fox news journalists writes the "new york times" have complained antics are embarrassing fox. it was said if he were still on headline news his event on the mall would have d

the best word to use. these voters have been used, either going republican for years or falling out of interest and helping republicans get elected. now they can all organize, they can all get on facebook, they can contact these candidates pretty easily and get revved up and drive up votes in a way they didn't used to. one twhoing point out. it is not just that they're electing tea party nominees instead of the establishment choices, the republicans are who have are not being defeated by the tea party, john mccain, for example, end up agreeing with them on the issues. the tea party has been really good, better than the democratic base, at moving the party in the direct they want. the more conservative direction. >> at this point we might as well add marko rubio and make it six versus five. do you have a sense, did miss angle give us more information than she wanted to by talking about the rhetoric of the primary versus the rhetoric of the general? any sense of who will try move away from the work stream positions to take softer angle, no pun intended? >> sharron angle has been refre
when such service is extremely perilous. that's "hardball" for now thanks for being with us. right now it is time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" tonight, from new york. these stories on the table and hit my hot button that is hour. i'm on fire that conservatives have taken their warped hatred of president obama into public schools in this country. parents are shielding kids from watching the president's back-to-school message. can you believe it? what a low point for this country. my commentary on that. plus, reaction from reverend al sharpton and katrina vanden heuvel of the nation. >>> america's mayor ber narrow is showing democrats basically how to get it done. his opponent was too much of a weenie to debate him in michigan, so he took matters into his own hands and crashed the town hall. we got the story for you. >>> and the professor of paranoia, glenn beck, is warning his viewers with a prediction of liberal violence, led by president obama. i will show you some unbelievable tape of the battleground story tonight. and t
with us. have a great labor day weekend. and we'll see you next week. right now, it's time for "the ed show" with ed schulze. >>> good evening, americans. and welcome to "the ed show." tonight from minneapolis, these stories are hitting my hot buttons at this hour. american workers are under attack from all sides. and i'm fighting for their honor and dignity. i've got an invitation for you. plus, the special canadientarily on this coming up next. you may not know it, but america's inner cities have become war zones. the murder rate in the president's hometown of chicago will absolutely shock you. reverend jesse jackson joins me in the battleground story tonight to expose the talk of wars that are raging right here at home and america. >>> and the nudester. he's flip-flopping again. the guy who fear among gerred about obama's socialist agenda is now pushing for a government takeover of ground zero. that's all coming up. but this is the story that has me fired up first tonight. glenn beck and i have had this war of wrds all week long. so over this so-called restoring honor rally in washi
your strengths. work and wages. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "countdown" with keith olbermann starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? from fighting the establishment to becoming it. the tea party has its fifth senatorial candidate who immediately steers away from the tea party. >> the reason we're here today is because of the alaskan voter. the volunteer network that was such an important part of our campaign and all the various endorsements that we got. >> fired up? ready to go? no? can you fake it? the afl-cio's urgent effort to reignite voter enthusiasm. our guest, union president richard trumpka. allan simpson again. first, the lesser evil. then the head of the older women's league should get a real job. now criticizing vietnam vets because they have been given too many benefits. benefits for which simpson voted as senator. >>> unmitigated gall. the biggest lie. the worst foreign policy decision in american history. and the bushies still want an ftd thank you bouquet for it. >> he couldn't be direct about the s
we'll see you again tomorrow night. i'm chris math use up in new york. bill clinton pitching coach, former president clinton who outsmarted republicans who tried to make him a one-termer has some political advice for president obama. he said there's still time to for obama to hold off for republican tidal wave but he says the only way to stop that republican wave is to tell voters not to let their disappointment cloud their judgment that obama's got plain to voters that our economy is improving faster than most of the worlds. that he's got to be optimistic about the future of this country and make the argument about republican ideas being no good. he's also got to nationalize the midterms in 1994. that's the advice today. and the president has to ask for two more years to get the job done. can this president pull off a popularity comeback in the way bill clinton did? that's our top story. plus, house republicans unveil their pledge to america today and it could be the biggest cover-up since watergate. it showcases all the predictable soft sell proposals but goes radio silent on the
don't impose them on us we pick them here, you guys for eight years or more than that under bush destroyed the republican party 2006. we lost both houses. you nominated somebody that got less of the vote in california than barry goldwater. now, thank you, we will pick our own leaders. and i think it is an excellent message to send. >> by the way that is the speech that edward dirkson gave. >> twice you have taken us down the road to defeat. we shall not follow you again. >> frightening. that was 1952. chuck, here is karl rove. i want chuck to jump in here, karl rove and sean hannity on fox last night with one point of view. let's listen. >> it does conservatives little good to support candidates who at the end of the day, while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not evince the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters looking for. there's just a lot of nutty things she's been saying. sounds like you don't support them, but i will tell you -- >> i'm for the republican, but i got to tell you, we were looking at ei

the political landscape dramatically six weeks before the midterms. mark murray joins us live from the site of the event. a lot of red meat for the faith there. including pleas to keep abortion and same-sex marriage as part of the gop platform. i understand why it's in their speeches. but is it really what they think will get conservatives elected. or is it more of a reallilying call? getting people fired up? >> it's important to point out this is sponsored by the family research counsel, always the social issue in opposition to abortion, opposition to gay marriage, with more opposition in the public sphere. it's no surprise social issues are front and center. the dominant political issue now in america is the economy with the unemployment rate at 10%. but this conference is really trying to hammer home that social issues and getting the social voters out to vote is important for republicans this fall. right before christine o'donnell speaks in a few minutes, i was just hearing a panel talk about their opposition to the repeal of don't ask, don't tell in the military. so they really are try
nonviolent and orderly way. let us hope that if nothing else, we can use yesterday's results as something instructive for us to turn that toward the six says there currently have a stranglehold on our country. i think we can. i'm dylan ratigan. and "hardball" is up right now. >>> drums along the delaware. let's play "hardball." good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, castle's falling. who's safe? what politician does not live in fear right now after what happened last night? if the most unbeatable of institutions, a beloved politician like michael castle can fall, who knows for sure he or she will be standing come this november 2nd election night. yes, the first walls to fall have been the republicans, they were the first line of defense of the way things r watch what happened to them. now come the democrats, crowded in the last. will they do better than the republican palace guard of specter, bennet, murkowski and all the pail lars of the grand old party establishment, the country clubber, the moderates, the rhinos, and most hated of all, washing
i said here is something all of us should unite on and that is education, even if i don't agree with all of his policies. i wish that americans would have had the same respect, all of them, for president obama today, or who ever the president is when it comes to educating our children. >> reverend al house, do we turn this thinking around? >> i think we have got to confront it. i think we have got to expose it like you do every night. i think that real americans need to come together. that's why i'm working with you and others on 10/2/10 in washington. one of the things we have in common is that all of our children are not getting access to a good public education. and that's where we can say, republican, democrats, independents should put their politics at the door of the school and go inside and unite around these kids. >> we will see you at the march october 2nd. i appreciate you being a part of it. we are look forward to it. >> thank you. >>> let's bring in katrina vanden heuvel, editor of the nation. thanks for your time tonight. >> thank you, ed. >> the message to young pe
on for a moment before i come back to you? >> i'll just wait here. thanks for staying us with at home on what promises tock a very, very business election night. the last big night of primaries for this year's elections. tonight's the night we learn the final matchups. with news from new york, new hampshire, delaware, maryland, massachusetts, rhode island, wisconsin, and the district of columbia. will insurgent conservative movement candidates keep picking off the republican establishment? will the sharron angle and rand pauls of this election year have more company as candidates no one can quite believe keep winning major party nominations for major political office. >> you can't masturbate without lust. >> oh dear. tonight's results from the delaware senate primary with keith olbermann, chris matthews and lawrence o'donnell, made silver about the stats of what is likely to happen next in november. it's all ahead in this tonight's primary hour of "the rachel maddow show." thank you for joining us tonight. and welcome to the last major night of primaries before this year's midterm elections.
. thanks for being with us. join us again tomorrow night from dublin for my interview with president bill clinton. "countdown" with keith olbermann starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? the day of major spills in the tea party? alaska senate candidate five months late filing personal finance disclosure faces $50,000 fine. florida senate candidate supporting english only with a commercial in spanish. delaware senate candidate lies about her education jump from one to three. and she hears voices. >> we marched on because we knew good was not releasing us to quit. >> but some of it is hardly that silly. church pedophelia victims today ask of ron johnson republican senate candidate in wisconsin, get the diocese to release the names of the priests involved. because when he was still on a diocese board, he testified on the bill to toughen laws against pedophelia, testified against it, because the new laws would be too tough on business. >> i think it is extremely important to consider the economic havoc and the other victims it would likely create. >>
using against them. that means going negative. it means brutally honest, devastatingly negative ads. as one strategist pointed out, anyone who spends money on a positive ad may as well get give money to charity. the democrats are finally getting tough. and that's our top story tonight. >>> plus, what scares you? what's to fear if the republicans grab control of the congress? another government shutdown in order to shift spending power to the congress? a relentless campaign to take down president obama. listen tonight to what the republicans themselves are offering up. >>> also, we have a glimmer of good economic news this morning. the jobless rate ticked up a tenth of a point to 9.6%. and 54,000 jobs were lost overall because of the temporary census bureau jobs coming to an end. but the private sector added 67,000 new jobs, higher than expected. that offers hope that things are getting better in the real economic world out there. still some democrats are quite worried about ending bush tax cuts for the top brackets. we'll look into that. some of them are starting to get very wary at
england. the outer banks, they see a ton of storms. huge storms all the time. the trees and buildings used to it. eastern new england, the leaves are still on the trees and may do more damage out there on the cape. waiting for tonight to see how that plays out. radar, of the storm, ron in the last rain band from the storm and probably in sunshine in an hour or two. winds in delaware and maryland, no big deal. wildwood to atlantic city, gusting 20 to 30 miles per hour. so really the mid-atlantic not an issue. as the storm heads northwards, notice cape cod far to the east there. that's why it's going to see the stronger winds. rain showers moving up into new england and long island. you have to be out there on the end of long island to be hit by the storm. as far as the stormwise, a different view. hurricane warnings for cape cod. large waves are now arriving and that forecast path brings the storm closest to eastern new england right around 10:00 p.m. tonight for the reporters blowing in the breeze out there. i think we have escaped this one. it is underachieved. >> all right. bill karins,
states. but ask yourself this, how appropriate is it clinton to backseat driving obama when he used to bristle the same thing happening to him in 1994. also, finish the following sentence. the tea party is "a," tearing apart the republican party or "b"," energizing the gop and opening up an enthusiasm gap. with democrat, the answer may tell us a lot and wait until you hear what eliot spitzer has to say about the fellow democrat who wants his old job, andrew cuomo. but that's in "the sideshow." host "face to face" on our nbc stations in nevada. and the politics editor for msnbc.com, von berger. look, we got to start with what happened on capitol hill. here's an exchange between michigan congressman john conyers and stephen colbert today. let's listen. >> i'm asking you to leave the committee room completely and submit your statement instead. >> i'm here at the invitation of the chairwoman and if she'd like me to remove myself from the hearing room, i'm theme do so. >> that is correct. >>s that fair enough. >> von, let me start with you. you've been doing this as long as i have. watch
to have you with us tonight. is it really a scam? is it all about making money or does beck really want to bring this country back to god, what do you think? >> well, according to "forbes" magazine, the beck enterprises made $32 million last year. so unless glenn beck is prepared to turn all of that money over to charities, i think that we can clearly and safety call him on his hypocrisy. and maybe it's a good campaign to lead, ed. we encourage beck to give the money away, because he wouldn't want to profit from something, right? so i think there's a strong, clear case about what you were saying, the money is a driving force here. and the irony of this man, sort of taking on the mantle of dr. king, you know that dr. king would be right up on the board with van jones and color of change and all the other people that beck has gone after. >> why is it then when liberals are passionate, we're labeled as angry? yet when conservatives get passionate, they're just great americans? is this just a conversational trip that these folks are on, what do you think? >> well, it's the fact that they're
msnbc that's going to do it for us this fine afternoon. i am dylan ratigan and "hardball" from ireland, no less, with bill clinton starting right now. >>> back to college with barack obama. let's play "hardball."\ >>> back to college with barack obama. let's play "hardball.">>> back obama. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in dublin, traveling this week with former president bill clinton. leading off tonight, mr. october, can president obama recapture some of that old 2008 magic? it certainly looked that way last night when 26,000 supporters turned to out for his rally in madison, wisconsin. more, by some estimates, than he drew during his campaign. he is become on the trail today again in iowa and in virginia and if, if he can close the enthusiasm gap, the democrats may be looking at a sweeter november. plus, sharron angle's habit of denying what she said on tape. we will listen to the denials and then go to the videotape. love this job. >>> also, i just went spent the entire day here on the irish isle with bill clinton and got a chance to talk to him
campaign mode. u.s. congressman jim clyburn of south carolina is the democratic whip. congressman clyburn, thank you for watching. here is president obama last night in madison, wisconsin. >> i know times are tough right now. i know times are tough. i know a lot of folks are anxious about the future and i know that during the campaign, especially after we had already started winning, the feeling was, well this is just exciting, you got those nice hope posters and then there was the inauguration and beyonce singing and bono and i know sometimes it feels a long way from the hope and excitement that we felt on election day or the day of the inauguration. but i've got to say, we always knew this was gonna take time. we always knew this was gonna be hard. >> congressman clyburn that is barack obama, the president of the united states, back in campaign mode. can he lift the spirits of the party? >> oh, absolutely. look, i've been out there every weekend for the last three, four weeks and i can tell you, i was in pennsylvania, new jersey, delaware, this past sunday, monday, tuesday, and people a
good anniversary, the day congress permanently established the u.s. peace corps. >>> let's start with bob woodward's book. andrea mitchell nbc news's chief correspondent and chuck todd is nbc's political director and chief white house correspondent. let me go to andrea first. andrea, let me read to you a quote from the book. this is something obama told his aides. "i think i have two years with the public on this. they'll stand by us for two years. that's my window." that seems to be a statement that politics plays a role in his thinking about how long to keep us in afghanistan. >> i think the politics does play a role but that is a commander in chief and a president who is trying to understand what leeway he has. i think it is defensible. i have talked to michael beschloss and others who say that this is someone trying to figure out what is tolerable by the american people. i think they can explain this and say this is exactly what he is doing. >> well, he's saying how much he can get away with in terms of keeping his troops there, because his base will depart from him otherwise
an incumbent is smaller. they argue if they can bad brush us as corrupt incumbents they can go after the fact nobody knows who they are. >> the point here is that the hour is late and polling is grim. there's not a lot that candidates can do at this late hour. if you're in the south, a democratic candidate in the south, mountain west, lots of regions in this country, your house speaker is in trouble popularity wise. your president is not that popular. the health care reform plan is not that popular. you have a big drag out there and you have to throw whatever you have out there. despite the success of a democratic legislative agenda, not getting traction. you have to throw something out there and it's often a negative ad. >> i'm thinking the old song "strangers in the night" which is the only number one song frank ever sang. it was a hell of a song. you can build a case about a stranger you can't build about an ike skelton or guy or woman who's been around for a while. you can commit infant size. go after the person before anybody knows who they are. christine o'donnell, all we know about her
